Warren County Farmer Directs American's Farms Grow Communities Donation to Warren County Community Foundation
The America’s Farmers Grow Communities program, sponsored by Bayer Fund, partners with farmers to provide grants to local nonprofits to help their communities.
Through the program, farmers enroll for the chance to direct a $2,500 donation to a local eligible nonprofit organization of their choice.
The America’s Farmers programs have given more than $57 million to rural America since 2010.
Williamsport, IN (August 31, 2020) – Local farmer, Candace Hunter, recently directed a $2,500 America’s Farmers Grow Communities donation, sponsored by Bayer Fund, to the Warren County Community Foundation.
Warren County Community Foundation will use the funds to add to the WCCF Board Alumni Fund. This fund gives an annual payout to a local organization as voted on by the former WCCF board members. This gives former board members a way to stay in touch with the Foundation and keep informed as to what the Community Foundation is doing in the community on an annual basis.
“ We would like to thank Candace Hunter for directing this gift from American’s Farmers Grow Communities sponsored by Bayer to the Foundation. We are excited to grow the WCCF Board Alumni Fund. Each year, great projects or organizations receive a surprise donation based on the alumni board members suggestions. The last gift went to the Warren County Youth Council. Their most recent project was the WACY Fun Warren County Game Park. We look forward to being able to give the next gift,” said Michele Stucky, Warren County Community Foundation Director.
Since 2010, the America’s Farmers programs have awarded more than $57 million to nonprofits, aspiring ag students and public schools across rural America. Farmers know the needs of their communities best, so the America’s Farmers programs rely on them to help identify the most worthy causes.
The Grow Communities program partners with farmers across the country to provide nonprofit organizations with resources to strengthen their local communities. Each August, farmers can enter for the chance to direct a $2,500 Grow Communities donation to a local eligible nonprofit of their choice. Farmers have directed donations to food banks, emergency response organizations, schools, youth agriculture programs and many others that reflect the spirit and support the vibrancy of rural America.
“Farmers truly understand the needs of their communities and where the opportunities to strengthen them exist. We partner with them to identify the nonprofit organizations that benefit from Grow Communities donations,” said Al Mitchell, Bayer Fund president. “Each donation shines a light on the organizations that are making a positive difference in rural communities across the country. Bayer Fund is proud to partner with farmers to give back in rural America.”

The America’s Farmers Grow Communities 2021 program will kick off on August 1, 2020, and farmers will once again have the opportunity to enroll for a chance to direct a donation to a local eligible nonprofit of their choice.
The Warren County Youth Council created the WACY Fun Warren County Game Park in Williamsport next to the swimming pool. The group received a QuIP Grant from OCRA. Accuburn Inc. created an amazing sign and four custom benches for the park. Junior Libby Smith spearheaded the entire project! More than 200 hours went into the project.
For years, many generous donors in the community have helped to improve Warren County by providing funding for community grants that help to strengthen the mission of organizations and scholarships that allow students to continue their education.
Right now you have a chance to multiply your impact! Lilly Endowment GIFT VII is offering a 2:1 match for Community Grants. This means that a gift of $100 would be matched with $200 from Lilly GIFT VII for a total gift of $300!
